Taking a short break...

To work on an ABC quilt for my little grand daughter Amy.

I love stitchery and appliqué together, don't you?
This is a block of the month by my sweet friend Jenny of Elefantz.
 I love her patterns, they are always super quick. 
We are having a crazy day of rain, thunderstorms, fog and sleet. So I am happy to be home and cozy, stitching with cheerful fabrics and threads!

Thoughts turning to Spring!

After yet another snowstorm in the Chicago-land area on Monday,
 today we have lovely spring-like weather!
The sun is shining!
Everything is beginning to melt.
People are cheerful!
Its such a relief!

Wool Felt Applique Pincushions~Coming Soon!

And I am realizing how much the weather,
and time of year, influence my color choices!
Punch Needle Design coming soon!
I started this cute punch needle sheep in the dead of winter.
When the weather is snowy, primitive colors always make me feel cozy and warm.
 But then spring hits, and like clockwork,
I want cheerful pastels and shabby chic-ness!!
It happens every year!
Do your color choices change with the seasons, or are you primitive all year?
 Or country all year?
Or shabby chic always!
I always wonder, is it just me?

New Punch Needle Designs!

 I've been punching away, and working with some wool too!
I have a new pattern for two punch needle hearts all written up, just waiting for some *light* to have a photo session!
This has certainly been the longest, coldest, and darkest winter I can remember in a loooong time! And we're not done yet I fear! We are supposed to get 2"-4" more snow tonight!
Keep warm!
